Trail Description
About this trail
Fun, twisty-between-the-trees singletrack that takes you mainly along the eastern edge of Etobicoke creek from the lake to the 401. Once you get up to the northern section near Centennial Park there are trails on both side of the ravine. The trails are shared use so watch out for walkers and runners. Mostly single track but there are some brief road and gravel path sections if you do the whole trail.

Review: Maintenance work at eglinton. Avoid the underpass, as you can cut through the trees

Review: I found that the Topo map of this trail isn't complete. Especially for Single Track. I know this trail very well since it runs next to my neighborhood. For MTB the trail has a section north of the QEW up to Dundas which is little known and a bit of a challenge. Then from Burnhamthorpe to the 401 you can ignore the paved/gravel section and run on the east ridge of the ravine where MTBers have built a single track. Beyond the 401 the trail goes past the airport to Dixie. This is usually where I stop. But you do have a road section up to Brampton where it resumes near the golf club north of the 407 up to the 410. I guess you really have 2 etobicoke creek trails; the Toronto/Mississauga one and the Brampton one. Or we could call it: North and South.

Review: Conditions are good. Really starting to grow in for the season. Site lines will be gone in a week. Watch for new low hanging branches and trees.

Review: I found the trails to be very plain, overgrown with vegetation in most parts, and contain few technical features. There's really no good flow and you often have to connect via road or paved park paths. I can't recommend this for anything but a casual ride if you live right there. If you are a fan of the Don trails, you will not find this very exciting. Nothing to write home about.

Review: Haven't been back to Etobicoke Creed in a while. Have been experimenting with night riding so I decided to test the east side of the ridge traveling south (close to the Tim Hortons parking lot). This part of the ridge is short but it had a few good jumps, a little drop and some technical single track. The flow is great if you maintain a good speed through-out. I'll have to do the rest of the creek again during daylight. Cheers and happy riding!

Review: Great to have this so close to town. I've heard it described as "almost the western Don Valley"... emphasis on the almost. The first time I went I missed a few entry points where it intersects with the main gravel path so had to loop back on myself a bit. There are some fun twisty sections of singletrack along the sides of the ravine, winding through the trees. Depending on the trail options you take there are a couple of short decents/climbs depending on your riding direction but nothing overly technical. Be warned, you do have to keep your speed in check. The three times I've ridden there there have been joggers, dog walkers and families (quite rightly) enjoying some sections of the trails too.
